The state of Wisconsin might burn to the ground if the Green Bay Packers sign Colin Kaepernick to replace injured Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers is probably out for the rest of the season with a broken collarbone, and the worst thing the organization could do is bring in Kaepernick. Giving him a workout alone will cause fans to freak out.
I grew up in Wisconsin, everybody I know back home is a huge fan and some of them even own part of the team. There wasn’t a single one of them that was in favor of giving Kaepernick a look.
“I will never watch a game the rest of my life,” one person I’m close with who is a massive fan responded when I asked about the speculation the team might be interested in the former 49ers quarterback.
Some other people told me much worse things that I could never publish on the internet.
I threw out a poll to my Twitter followers on what the Packers should do, and nearly 80 percent of voters want nothing to do with Kap.
Should the Green Bay Packers sign Colin Kapernick following Aaron Rodgers breaking his collarbone, and potentially done for the season?

The people of Wisconsin and the Green Bay Packers fans in general are not fans of protesting the national anthem, disrespecting America, wearing socks that depict cops as pigs or athletes who celebrate murderous dictators. Kaepernick has done all of those things.
Packers fans are people who work their 40 hours a week, like having a few beers over the weekend and are fiercely patriotic.
There will be a full on revolution in the state if the Packers ink a deal with Kaepernick. You think viewership is already going down? You will have never seen anything like will happen if the organization’s management team makes the decision to extend an offer to Kaepernick.
